Meet MLC Monday: Charles Murray

Meet Charles Murray, Circulation Services Librarian for Talking Book Services at the Mississippi Library Commission. Charles, who passed his 17th year working for MLC last September, fills a number of vital roles for the agency. Murray is primarily charged with sending library materials to visually and physically impaired patrons across the state. This includes everything from digital books and magazines to DVDs with descriptive audio tracks to braille books and magazines. He is quick to point out that if we don't have a title that a patron wants, we can get it through interlibrary loan. Charles also shelves and processes returning material and mail.

When asked why he's dedicated so many years to MLC, Murray says, "I love helping people. The services we provide brighten our patrons' days and that makes me feel good." He's also become a big library advocate, pointing out all the great things libraries offer their communities. "Computer access, searching for and applying for jobs, a nice place to study, and all the books you could ever read--these are only a few of the advantages your local library offers."

Charles likes to read and says he likes his books like he likes his movies: drama and action packed. He also enjoys musicals like The Blues Brothers and Sister Act II. In his free time, Charles likes basketball, bowling, and traveling. A huge LA Lakers fan, he recently took a road trip to Los Angeles and got to tour the Staples Center and Universal Studios. "If it weren't so far, I'd be back in a minute!"
